ISTANBUL, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Turkish police on Thursday detained at least 52 Syrians in the northwestern province of Bursa over their suspected links to the Islamic State (IS) militant group.

Counter-terrorism units launched simultaneous operations in five locations across the city to catch the suspects, according to the private Demiroren news agency.

Police also seized organizational documents and digital materials during the raids, the agency said.

More than 300 people were killed in deadly attacks in Turkey over the years blamed on the IS.
